The groundbreaking 311-acre mixed-use project, located on the west side of Power Road between Elliot and Warner Roads directly off the 202 Freeway, will be the first mixed-use development of its kind to be built in Gilbert, a growing suburb of Phoenix. At build out, the project will be valued at more than $1 billion.

“We are incredibly excited and grateful for the Town of Gilbert’s zoning approval, which solidifies our vision for this groundbreaking project,” said Todd Ostransky, Regional Vice President of Development for Indicap. “This development will not only serve as an economic catalyst, but also as a testament to our dedication in creating a sustainable and vibrant destination that meets the evolving needs of the Gilbert community.”

The Ranch in Gilbert will include multiple product types including industrial, residential, commercial, and retail. The plan also calls for more than 16 acres of green space.

Specifically, the project will include:

The Ranch – 221 acres of light Industrial with the potential of 3 million square feet of mid-bay and cross dock industrial buildings.  

Shops at the Ranch – General Commercial consisting of 39 acres that will include multiple types of commercial, including restaurants, drive thru (QSR), storage, convenient stores, small office, fitness center, small grocer, dental office, etc.

Residences at the Ranch – an innovative and vibrant development of residential and commercial uses that will create live-work-play opportunities in the community surrounding Morrison Ranch. The plan calls for +/- 39 acres of multi-family and mixed-use product types. Multi-family will include two- and three-story homes with some ground floor commercial.  Additionally, there will be a 16-acre green space that will include trails and landscaping for the community to use.

• $20m worth of offsite improvements are planned

The economic impact of this project is expected to be substantial, with the creation of thousands of jobs during the construction phase and ongoing employment opportunities across various industries upon completion. The development will attract new businesses, bolster the local economy, and serve as a catalyst for future growth in Gilbert and the surrounding region.
